Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The second event of the Professional Fighter’s League 2022 season wrapped up just moments ago, headlined by a Heavyweight clash between last year’s winner Bruno Cappelozza and veteran Stuart Austin.

This one didn’t last too long.

Cappelozza started the fight strong, chopping some early low kicks before landing a big right in an exchange. The fight moved into the clinch from there, with Cappelozza scoring a couple brief takedowns with trips. When the two separated, Cappelozza sent his opponent stumbling with another big right hand.

Stuart tried to dive towards the legs, but he wound up on his back. Cappelozza passed into mount soon afterward, releasing a flurry of punches to secure the first-round stoppage win, as well as six points in the 2022 season.

At the moment, I’m still waiting to hear back on a new opponent. I’ve accepted one, but nothing is confirmed. The plan remains to compete on May 28, but well, MMA ...

As with all my pro fights, I raise funds to cover camp costs/actually make a profit via the fight banner. $5 or more gets your name/screen name/nickname on the fight banner, and it enters you into a raffle to win the banner itself.

Now, this is a rumor based on a recent Zabit Instagram post, so don’t take it as confirmed fact ...

Seems like an odd time to be flying to Russia to fight in a regional show anyway, does it not?

It was just recently announced that Khusein Askhabov will be fighting Herbert Burns in July in UFC. Here’s a quick clip of the Russian in action:

I can think of more efficient uses of $800 to travel, but this is neat!
